2014 BMW 428i Drivetrain Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2014 BMW 428i

Your 428i’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It's one of the most complex systems in your 428i and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2014 BMW 428i, you help maintain your vehicle's power. Follow BMW's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

What Are BMW 428i Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are quite different, so you don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. You want to come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 2014 BMW 428i drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your BMW could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice clunks when shifting, vibration as your vehicle accelerates, resistance when turning, or heavy vibrations in your floorboards. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. The system’s parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. A lot depends on your driving style and climate. One of your best courses of action is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice that something feels "off" with your BMW 428i.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 2014 BMW 428i? Minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. Big repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
